Clerk Pleads Not Guilty To Murder Over Condoms

DETROIT (WWJ) – A plea of not guilty was entered for Ibrihim Saleh, a gas station clerk who has been charged in the shooting death of a 24-year-old Detroit man over the price of condoms.

The 23-year-old Dearborn man appeared via video monitor at his arraignment Wednesday in 36th District Court in Detroit.

His attorney Todd Flood argued that this should not be a first degree murder case.

Flood said he’s gone over the video from the BP gas station where Michael Haynes was shot last Saturday night – video he says shows Haynes vandalizing the store after he and Saleh argued.

His client, he said, is distraught.

“He’s very sad. This is tragic all the way around. He doesn’t want this. This is something he never intended and his heart goes out to the family,” said Flood. “This is a very sad situation. There’s no winners here.”

Bond was denied. A preliminary examination was set for March 26.
